Hiking Word Search Printable

My kids love word searches so much! I often find them doing them every afternoon when they need some downtime. They usually start with the unicorn word search and then they move on to the nature word search. Recently my kids have been talking all about hiking so I decided it was time to make this fun hiking word search for them to enjoy.

This Hiking Word Search is perfect for everyone who loves hiking. It has hiking-related words that kids (and adults) can learn more about hiking while having fun.

Helpful Tools We Love When Downloading Printables

  • Printer– I love my HP+ printer that uses Instant Ink. I love it because we can use as much color ink as you want for one low cost starting at $.99/ month for ink. Try it out for free here!
  • Cardstock- I always recommend printing on cardstock. This makes it way more durable so you don’t have to worry about printing it time and time again.
  • Laminator / Laminating Sheets- Again, for added durability, grab a laminator and laminating sheets so that you can use this again and again!
  • Scissors (I seriously love these ones)
  • Dry Erase Pens- Use dry erase pens so that you can wipe your laminated printable clean over and over again for endless use!
